Skyrim - Population Mods

From the descriptions it doesnt seem like any of these mods provide increased population density where I think Skyrim needs it the most. I would like to see more NPCs in certain battles (Ulfric attacking Solitude at the head of less than ten men, and giving a speech to five or so is a joke), and also more wildlife in the wilderness (that is very empty between locations).
Cities could use more NPCs, but if it makes it much harder to find the meaningful ones then I say gameplay trumps population density.
Forts, dungeons and the like have the right population density as far as I can tell. We are not talking army garrisons here. Having about 20-30 bandits holding a keep is quite reasonable, and most forts I recall have about ten men manning the walls. The whole point of a fortress is that you need fewer men to hold it.
